My childhood came through in this recipe, I remember absolutely loving Fruity Pebbles as a kid drenched in milk and then when all the cereal was gone I would drink up the milk. These days I go for more healthy options like Oatmeal or Avocado Toast but every so often I like to remember those sweet, childhood food memories.
This recipe while incredibly simple speaks to those memories and made me realize that the original cereals will never get old. It got me thinking that maybe I would like to do a blog food series completely based on all the childhood cereals I used to devour. I had tons of fun making this and it’s totally versatile- whatever you want to top it with, go ahead. Even just plain they are amazing!
Get ready for the best sugar high of your life and crank some of these out!
Fruity Pebbles Treats
4 Cups Fruity Pebbles Cereal
1 10oz bag of mini marshmallows
1 1/2 Stick of Unsalted butter
1 Tsp Vanilla
Pinch of salt
White or Dark chocolate for drizzling or dipping
Over medium heat start to melt the butter, add vanilla and salt
Once melted, let it simmer until bubbly and starts to turn a little brown- watch that it doesnt burn
Once this stage is complete, add the marshmallows and stir until melted through
Add the Fruity Pebbles and stir until evenly coated
Prepare a square pan for thicker treats or a 13 x 9 pan for thinner treats- I used Pam
Press mixture into the pan- these re not like rice crispies- they need to be refrigerated or put in the freezer to set.
Once set you can melt some dark chocolate or white chocolate and drizzle or dip
Either choice is good, don’t over do it or the treats will be way too sweet.
You will be left with delicious, childhood memory inducing treats!
I chose white chocolate and it was delicious!
Until next time,
Life as a Maven
